Al Murray and more big names complete the stellar comedy lineup for INTERLUDE, the six-week long programme of live performance in a temporary outdoor venue in Norwich presented by Norwich Theatre and Lost in Translation Circus.
The world’s favourite pub landlord, Al Murray, is among the latest in a host of big names added to the comedy lineup for INTERLUDE. Alongside Al Murray with his brand new show, new additions to the INTERLUDE comedy line-up announced today are also much-loved Norwich Playhouse regulars Russell Kane, Seann Walsh, Suzi Ruffell and Simon Evans.
In addition, Norwich Theatre are delighted that Norwich-based comedian Nelson Gombakomba will also perform as part of the programme.
As well as these new comedy shows, Norwich Theatre confirm a further series of shows transferring from the original programme intended for Norwich Playhouse including national treasures Ruby Wax, Mark Watson and Simon Brodkin alongside musical comedy from Jonny Awsum and Jonny & The Baptists.
INTERLUDE is presented by Norwich Theatre in partnership with Lost in Translation Circus and supported by Norwich City Council and Norwich BID in association with Aspall.
After many months of lockdown, I think we all need some escapism and shows to make us laugh out loud. This incredible line-up, featuring some of the very best comedians on the circuit today and all favourites with our audiences at Theatre Royal and Playhouse, will absolutely do that.”Stephen Crocker, Chief Executive of Norwich Theatre
Caroline Richardson, Playhouse Director at Norwich Theatre, said: ”It is just wonderful to be able to programme favourite shows for everyone who loves theatre, to have joy and laughter again.
